Red Raiders roll past Tigers



Bellingham's girls' tennis team handled Burlington-Edison with ease, topping the Tigers 7-0 on Monday, March 24, at Burlington-Edison High School.

"I think the story today was in the sets that were close, the kids responded well to the score being tight," Bellingham coach Steve Chronister said in a phone interview. "Keri Brauner and Tess Owen played a really smart last game to clinch their second set."

Another player to battle back was No. 1 singles player Kira Vazorka, who dropped her first set 6-2 before rallying 6-0, 6-0 in the next two.

"Tennis is kind of funny," Chronister said. "Kira started playing better and her opponent tailed off a little and those two things can change close games. It's a lethal combination. It doesn't take much sometimes. We were very happy with her turning that around."

Bellingham faces Lynden on Wednesday, March 26, at Bellingham High School.
